The RSVP list for The Artists Voice: Ishmael Houston-Jones in conversation with Wangechi Mutu and Thomas J. Lax is now closed.

Organized to kick-off Danspace Project's PLATFORM 2012: Parallels, curated by Ishmael Houston-Jones, this artist talk and conversation invites the New York-based choreographer and movement artist to reflect on his work and practice over the past three decades. A pioneering artist in the downtown dance scene, Houston-Jones has made indelible contributions to ideas about contemporary society and to interdisciplinary artistic production. This program is organized as part of Houston-Jones's reconsideration of Parallels--organized in 1982 to investigate the role of black choreographers in contemporary dance. A thirty-year anniversary of artistic vision and community conversation, this program offers a unique opportunity to hear Houston-Jones talk about key moments in his creative career.

Admission is free. Seating is first come, first served. Please make sure to arrive early as an RSVP does not guarantee you a confirmed seat.
